Andrei Severny is a contemporary filmmaker, photographer and video artist. Maintaining a strong and recognizable visual style, his works operate on multiple levels engaging both intuition and intellect. He depicts characters challenged by love and duty, compassion and rage, loss and reconciliation, mystery and discovery. At the same time stories seamlessly integrate scientific analysis, reveal scholarly explanations or Severny’s vision of the future. In his quest to show inner world Severny embraces both reality and abstraction creating a genre of his own. Severny’s narrative and documentary films explore human perception, psychology, neuroscience. Since 2007 Severny collaborates with Edward Tufte, a world renown master of analytical design, producer of Severny’s documentary Teaching to See. Andrei Severny’s  first feature-length film CONDITION was produced by the fierce independent filmmaker Amir Naderi and premiered at the 29th Torino Film Festival, Italy. Severny was born in 1977 in Moscow, Russia into a family of astronomers. Since 2004 he lives and works in New York City.
